In this episode, Bo Bennett speaks with Dr. Ginger Campbell, host of the Brain Science Podcast, about neuroscience and the many issues that science can shed light on such as the concepts of self, freewill, belief, consciousness, morality, and others.

Dr. Campbell is an experienced emergency physician with a long-standing interest in mind-body medicine, the brain, and consciousness. She is also interested in a wide variety of other topics including the history of science and ideas. She began podcasting in 2006 and has discovered that it is a great way to share ideas with people from around the world.

In July 2014, Dr. Campbell left emergency medicine to begin a Fellowship in Palliative Care at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. She has continued to produce her Brain Science Podcast fairly regularly.

In May, Dr. Campbell spoke at the 2015 American Humanist Association Annual Conference in Denver, CO, delivering a talk on “What Every Humanist Needs to Know about Palliative Care.”
